Lakeshore Entertainment is launching its new digital studio with the purchase of the new film Man Up starring Justin Chon (Randall) and Kevin Wu (Martin), reports Variety.
The coming of age comedy played this month at CAAMfest in San Francisco and centers around two teens struggling with balancing the fun moments in life with the realities of adult responsibilities. The process is sped up when Martin’s girlfriend tells him she’s pregnant.
“We are excited to blend Lakeshore’s knowledge and skills gained from its 20-year track record of traditional filmmaking and distribution with the new world of digital influencers,” said Lakeshore CFO Marc Reid. “We think each world can elevate the other.”
Lakeshore’s new digital studio will be called Off the Dock.
